a timber, which did not touch him, killed
the little girl. Scarcely one brick of tha

before the tornado struck. In a field near
the town, a farmer who was plowing saw
tha storm approach and managed to get
the members of his family outdoors and
behind stumps before the wind came. The
house-was blown awsy, but nona of the

It was a beautiful and Impressive service
arranged especially for the occasion. A
large number of friends were present. Short
addresses were made by Rev. A. t Shcr
rell and Judge? J. tv. Savage, and the sing
ing was led by Miss Pennell, whom we all
remember as on of the sweetest ot
Trinity's bygone cholrster. The bishop
was happy in the fuUflllraent of another of
his cherished projects. His people and
friends rejoiced with him and altogether It
waa an occasion long to be remembered.
"The cathedral and hospital were conse
crated within one month of each other, and
they stand together as grand memorials
of Bishop Clarkson snd hi swork. v
"It wss the bishop' first Intention that
tha hospital should be devoted exclusively
to tha care of children, but In a short time
th constitution wss so amended aa to
permit tho admission of adults, and the
first yearly report ending March 1, 1S84,
gave the number of children treated aa
U2, and adults thirty -alght.
"Upon th completion of th hospital
building th whole property was transferred
to the cathedral chapter of tu diocese,
which assumed Its nominal control. After
Bishop Clarkson's death In March 1884,
Mrs. Clarkson was mads its life manager,
and Its present position and success is
largely due to her absolute devotion to Its
work and Interests. It was then re-named
Th Bishop Clarkson Memorial Hospital
for Children,' and in May, 1892, was In
corporsted under.that name when it passed
under the control of a board ot trustees

"In 18S0 th full lot adjoining tha hospital
on the east was purchased, and th small
cottage on it waa renovated and furnished
for th us of th nurses. It waa th lu- '
tentlon at that time to erect a large ad
dition to tha old hospital building, but that
plan was afterward abandoned and the
effort of th board were turned toward
procuring a larger and better alta on which
to build and obtaining th best plans for a
commodious building which should have
all th modern applisnces for th handling
and cr of tha aick and injured. This

many others which wer considered, and li
June, 1906, it waa purchased for the new
hospital site, and In th fall of 1907 the
foundations were laid.
Bishop Clarkaon'a Own Story. .
"I cannot more appropriately close this
short sketch than by quoting from Bishop
Clarkson's own story of th very beginning
of his hospital, which he told us on the
night of its consecration. It Is more pouch
ing when we remember how barely he was
granted his hesrfs desire. He said:
"In 1868, shortly arter I came to Omaha
to live, Pwas In New York attending the
general convention of the church and Dr.
Muhlenberg, the foimder of St. L.uke's
hospital In that city, asked me to make an
address on its anniversary. I had often
visited the hospital and had been especially
touched by the lovely and well ordered

and had made tip my mind that If God
spared my life I woulc certainly do what
I could to found a chllds' hospltsl. in
Omaha. Accordingly, In my address to the
large crowd of people that filled the chapel
of the hospital I said that I desired very
much to see such an institution in the city
of my home before my episcopate had
ended, and, that If I jould get a nest eKg
for the fund It waa sure to grow. A dear
little child who was present and heard ma
say this returned to her home and opmicd
her mite chest, where her little savings
had been accumulating, arid gave the con
tents, about $5. to me with tho request
that I would make tills the neat egg for
the chllds' hospital fund, and I did so. That
little child, who has grown to be a woman,
is present at this dedication of the hospital,
which has been erected with the fund that
haa gathered around her little nest egK. I
